Settling the Score: Wednesday’s results

54 Comments

Happy Fourth of July. In honor of our Great Nation’s birthday, I slept in to the insanely late hour of 7:25 AM. I know. It’s like I’m in college or something. It’s so weird to see so much of the morning gone, but there we are. How you people do this on a regular basis is beyond me. 5:30 AM is where it’s at.

In baseball, Max Scherzer is now 13-0, Hanley Ramirez and the Dodgers continued his/their torrid pace, the Angels’ seven-game winning streak came to an end and Chris Davis hit another homer. Scores-wise, here’s what went down:

Tigers 6, Blue Jays 2
Brewers 4, Nationals 1
Diamondbacks 5, Mets 3
Red Sox 2, Padres 1
Pirates 6, Phillies 5
Orioles 4, White Sox 2
Marlins 6, Braves 3
Mariners 4, Rangers 2
Reds 3, Giants 2
Yankees 3, Twins 2
Dodgers 10, Rockies 8
Astros 4, Rays 1
Cardinals 12, Angels 2
Cubs 3, Athletics 1
Royals 6, Indians 5

Jon Heyman reports that the Phillies are going to sign pitcher Drew Smyly. Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philly reported last night that the team and Smyly were chatting.

Smyly opted out of his minor league contract with the Brewers yesterday after allowing seven runs on 10 hits and three walks with 18 strikeouts in 12.2 innings with Triple-A San Antonio and not getting a hint of a call-up to the big club. Earlier this year he pinched off an 8.42 ERA with a 52/34 K/BB ratio in 51.1 innings for the Rangers.

He’s basically a free pitcher for Philly, who could use an arm. If he works out, he works out. If not, no loss. Well, I suppose it’s possible there’d be one loss and some walks and hits in like, four innings, or something, but you know what I mean.
